Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh: Congress leader Nasimuddin Siddiqui’s supporters fight over biryani, 9 Congress workers arrested

Biryani was to be served after an election meeting, but people got impatient and rushed for it, causing clashes and injuries

An ugly brawl broke out between some supporters of Congress Lok Sabha candidate from Bijnor Nasimuddin Siddiqui over Biryani which was reportedly being served at an election meeting. The incident happened at Tadheda village in Uttar Pradesh where an election meeting was being organised at the residence of former MLA Maulana Jameel. In a video of the incident shared on Twitter, people can be seen attacking each other with sticks.

According to officials, the election meeting was being held without prior permission and therefore a police case has been lodged and nine people have been arrested. The biryani was to be served for lunch after the meeting but the people grew impatient and rushed for its first serving which led to the clashes. Several persons were injured in the incident. The situation could be controlled only after the police reached there.

A case has been filed against the former MLA and his son Naeem Ahmad under various sections of the Indian Penal Code for violating the model code of conduct. Nine arrests have been made so far in relation to the incident and the security has also been increased in the village by deploying additional forces to prevent further violence, as told by Circle Officer Ram Mohan Sharma.

Former MLA Jameel who was elected from Meerapur constituency in 2012, had left Bahujan Samaj Party and joined Congress Party last week.
